Congratulations to our Varsity Cheerleading squad for an amazing performance at a Universal Cheerleaders Association camp at Clemson University! Our Fighting Eagles Cheerleaders won first place in the Rally Routine Championship and first place in the Game Day Championship for their division. Because of these first place finishes, they are invited to perform at the Citrus Bowl with other teams from this region.

Rachel Jackson and Grace Nason were named All-American cheerleaders and will have an opportunity to participate in the New Year’s Day Parade in London. Captain Sarah Spivey was honored during the “Pin It Forward” Ceremony for her leadership as recognized by fellow cheerleaders from other schools.

The Varsity Cheerleaders attended the UCA camp at Clemson from July 30 - August 2 where they worked on new cheers, dances, and improving stunting technique. They learned various new stunts from full ups to full downs and pyramid transitions. During evening team meetings, they set individual as well as team goals and determined strategies for reaching these goals. The team goals that they are the most focused on is student participation at football games and school unity.

Chick-fil-A Leader Academy Coming To PCA

main image

We're Re-imagining High School Leadership! Palmetto Christian Academy is pleased to announce that we are bringing the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy to our school in 2018-2019!

The Leader Academy is a national high school leadership program focused on IMPACT THROUGH ACTION. The world needs more leaders who impact their local communities, and we believe high school students are the answer! The Chick-fil-A Leader Academy brings a fresh approach to leadership and empowers young people to make a difference.

This is a year-long curriculum, taught once per month for approximately one hour. Up to 30 students, grades 9-12, will be selected to participate after an application process. The program engages students with a monthly "Leader Lab" focusing on important leadership skills including vision and values, servant leadership, teamwork, communication, and innovation and impact. Throughout the program, students plan an "impact project," which is the culmination of the program. The impact project is student-planned and student-led.

We are extremely grateful to Josh Malone, Chick-fil-A Owner/Operator, who has graciously agreed to sponsor and fund PCA's participation in this valuable leadership program. 

You'll be hearing much more about the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy as we kick off the new school year in August!
